No other museum covers the history of humanity and its achievements as thoroughly as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is not just the greatest art museum in America. It is also the most complete encyclopedic art museum on the planet, rivaled only by the Louvre in Paris and the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, whose collections have significant gaps by comparison. Your journey begins with a brief history of the museum, Central Park, and the city itself. Then you proceed up the broad steps facing Fifth Avenue and into the museum's Great Hall. A great art collection like The Metropolitan Museum of Art's is a place for dreamers, thinkers, and time travelers. It is a world where you can connect to people and cultures that are long vanished. Great works of art communicate across time. They evoke distinctive people, ways of life, and points of view that are both familiar and strange, and that puts the present into a more universal context. Come join us for this one-of-a-kind trip through the ages while we visit many amazing works of art created by the masters.
